ARAFAT, Saudi Arabia (Reuters) – Muslims at the annual haj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia criticized what they described as discordant Arab leaders for failing to block President Donald Trump’s decision to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem after he recognized the city as Israel’s capital.

It was a reversal of decades of American policy and the embassy opened in May at a high-profile ceremony attended by Trump’s daughter Ivanka and his son-in-law Jared Kushner, the U.S. envoy to the Middle East.

The status of Jerusalem – home to sites holy to the Muslim, Jewish and Christian religions – is one of the biggest obstacles to any peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.

  1. Reblogged this on Progressive Islam. and commented:

    As long as KSA AND IRAN fo not obey Human Right, equality and justice for all there will be no permanent peace. Killing innocent people will continue for years ahead—

    US, UK , RUSIA and Israel will get benefits a lot. A religion cannot unit people, Because most Arab leaders are Hypocrites.

    KSA is US ally,
    Israel us US ally

    Most Islamic countries have no power to REJECT or against KSA.
    Because Islamic countries are afraid of KSA if KSA will forbid Muslim to perform Hajji every years.

    There is no solution in short time—God has a good plan wait and see

  2. Now you have realize that the root of conflict in Islamic countries is not come ftom others but it come from itself.

    Othe parties just help those who conflict for their benafits—so as long as KSA and Iran do not obey Human Right there is no peace. US, UK, Rusia and Israel are OK for them.
    They can help some one who want to buy arms—

    Are US, UK, Rusia and Israel wrong doing? No at all. They eant to buy arms to protect their country or citizen Right.

    For example: if the extremist Muslim want to attack Ahmadiyyah community and destroy Mosque, Ahmadiyyah will ask someone to Help ahmadiyyah, other wise Ahmadiyyah will be finished on earth.

    A wise man always look at to himself if there is something wrong , but a foolish always blame others

    • Somi has simple approaches. US, UK, etc. Can you just tell me how the US is ‘protecting its country’ by bombing Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Iraq, Somalia, Pakistan, and how many other countries?

      • Dear Rafiq—-by minimizing the extremist intolerant in Islamic countries will help US from Terrorist ‘s attacking US.
        The extremist intolerant Muslim cannot be defeated by bombing terrorist in Islamic countries but at least will minimize their capability to attack US land, like 9/11.

        So far it is very effective indeed.
        Taliban, Isis and others do not have the land to be governed, they have been defeated— it does not means they do not exist— there are still millions the silence extremist in many countries—

        The US Power cannot defeat the extremist Islamic completely— only The peaceful Muslim or Islam can defeat the extremist ideology— for example : Ahmadiyyah—progressive Muslim can defeat the extremist graduately. Hopefully the west countries can support us to defeat the extremist ideology.

        All love ❤️

      • US and Israel created Isis. Where did they get initially all the Toyotas from? Even Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman pointed out it was the USA who pushed for the Wahabi expansion. (it was in TMT). Isis suits USA and Israel in their aim of destabilization and destruction. Yes, of course, the Arabs should not let themselves be used !!!!
